I wouldn't bet money on it myself, but still, it's not hard at all for me to believe that an off-duty cop in a moment of poor judgment might do something stupid like this. Some of them get drunk and dumb on their own time despite the example they're obliged to set for the public when on duty. Remember the fool off-duty cop that gave the Rev Phil a hard time during the naked bike ride a couple years ago? That cop was completely out of line. The courts became involved in judging whose actions were right in that incident and decided against the cop.
